Kindness runs through all of their veins…
Based on my experience over the last two years, I would not hesitate in recommending Westbank to anyone. It is a first-class home. All the staff, not just the carers, will chat with the residents to make their stay enjoyable.
Kindness runs through all of their veins. The home is all on the ground floor which is excellent for residents to get about and all the bedrooms have great views of the garden and wildlife which is ideal for those confined to their beds.
The cleanliness of the building is very good and the residents are always well turned out too, with their own clean clothes. The residents are encouraged to take part in a daily programme of activities which is excellent for both their physical and mental well-being.
An important advantage that Westbank has over some homes is its ability to switch from a care home to a nursing home. I experienced this first hand recently when my mum was very ill.
The state registered nurses at Westbank were fantastic offering 24-hour care that seems impossible to get if the resident goes to hospital instead.
